Mount Batur Sunrise Trekking Hiking Tour

Bali Paradise Waterfall Trekking Tour

In this tour, we will visit the northern part of Bali where there are several waterfalls available to visit. We choose Sekumpul waterfall because it is definitely the best waterfall in the island. This tour will incorporate a quite long drive through winding road and over three hours trek through hundreds of steps on narrow path, various tropical plantations, jungle and bridge. You will also need to cross the rivers to get a closer look at the waterfall.

Pick up time will be at around 8 o'clock in the morning (depending on your hotel location). The drive will take you through winding roads and cool mountainous area of Bali. On the way to get there you will also pass several interesting spots like coffee plantation, Jatiluwih rice terrace and Bedugul with its beautiful view of Ulun Danu water temple. You can optionally visit these sites if you are interested (on the way to/from your hotel).

First optional stop is visiting the Jatiluwih, a huge extensive rice field which has been recognized by UNESCO as one of the world heritages. Here you can see stunning view of rice terraces unfolding from the foot of mountain until the coastal side. According to its name Jati and Luwih, Jati means 'really' and Luwih means 'good or beautiful', this place is just so beautiful which make it one of top things that you have to visit during your Bali trip. Type of rice paddies planted here are mostly different compared to other farming area in Bali. Paddies here grow taller and take a bit longer to grow before they are ready to be harvested.

 Jatiluwih is also famous of its organic agriculture system due to its location in the plateau of Mount Batukaru which is suitable for the agriculture development. As Jatiluwih is located right at the foot of Mt. Batukaru, you will also get a beautiful scenery of the mountain area along with its fresh air and natural panorama.

Second optional stop is visiting the Bedugul which is very famous of its Ulun Danu water temple. This temple is dedicated to the goddess of the lake (Ida Batari Dewi Ulun Danu). The temple was built in 17th century to worship the main Hindu trinity, Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, as well as the goddess of lake Dewi Danu. The sight and cool atmosphere here have made the lake and this temple a favourite sightseeing and recreational destination as well as a top spot for photo opportunity.

After visiting the temple, you can opt to have lunch at a restaurant overlooking the lake Bratan (included).

It will take around 45 minutes to 1 hour drive from Bedugul until we get to our main destination which is the Sekumpul Waterfall. Once we get there, we will start the 1 - 2 hours trek (longer trek is also available with a bit extra cost) to explore the waterfalls and it's surroundings. Sekumpul itself means 'collection' as there are more than one waterfall. After a few minutes walk through small roads, local people's houses, plantations and small river; you will be greeted by the waterfall duo of Sekumpul. You can also see another collection of waterfall on the far side (only one visible from the distance though there are actually three or more waterfalls there). Feel free to take a lot of picture here, you can also ask your guide to take picture of you with the waterfall as the backdrop.

We will need to cross that rocky river to get to the base of waterfal duo. Some people can cross the river by just stepping on the rocks without touching the water. If you are wearing shoes, take them off before crossing the river.

What they said...


So grateful for this tour!

Very relieved that this company is so reliable.

The tour made our trip to Bali. The guide was an amazing driver and so thankful he got us back to our hotel safely with so many memories.

If your questioning on doing a tour please know that this will help relieve any kind of stress with entrance fees, driving, lunch and haggling from locals.

The lunch was a buffet which allowed us to freely get what we liked and the serving amount.

Thank you Bali Hai Adventure Tours!

Sekumpul Waterfalls

Just excellent.

Excellent communication, Kadek worked with me to achieve exactly what I wanted. My driver was a really nice guy who drove safely.

A long day trip but so memorable. The waterfalls were superb, loved the experience of getting down to them, crossing the river and getting drenched.

Highlight of the trip!

I’d recommend the company.

Paradise Waterfall Tour

We did this tour after doing the volcano hike the day before.

Our first stop was the Sekumpul waterfalls, This was only about 30 minutes from our hotel (our hotel located in Singaraja). There is about a 45 minute walk down 100+ stairs and through rivers to reach the waterfalls. You will want shoes that you can walk through the rivers with because there are sharp rocks that will hurt your feet if you try to go barefoot. Most tours leave from Ubud or Seminyak which are further from the waterfalls. Because of this, we were the first ones at the waterfalls and got them to ourselves.. We were able to spend a couple of hours walking around the two large waterfalls and swimming in the ponds beneath them

After the waterfalls we were able to get changed in a bathroom at the parking lot. From the waterfall we continued south towards Seminyak. Out next stop was Pura Ulun Danu. This is one of the most famous temples in Bali and is located on one of the few lakes on the island. After the temple we got lunch and had the option of going to the Jatiluwih rice terrace. This rice terrace is larger than the one we saw previously and is a UNESCO site. We were exhausted from another early morning and it was starting to rain again so we decided to head straight to Seminyak.

Another great way to spend the day...
